10 AUSSIE DESIGNERS CRAFTING KINKY GOODS

It's no secret that us kinksters like nice things: we like to have fancy toys to play with when a bare-handed spank just won't cut it anymore, and we like to look good whilst we're doing it (with or without clothes on).


Lucky for us Aussies, the home-grown kinky gear sector is booming - with the number of independent kinky gear and fetish fashion makers growing by the year, with no sign of it slowing down. If you've ever been to a fetish marketplace event here in Aus, you'll know it's definitely the case that we're almost spoiled for choice when it comes to supporting local kinky business.


With so many to choose from, we've simply gone with our top ten favourites to share with you in this article - being a mix of kinky crafters, fetwear designers and gearmakers from all across the country... enjoy!

The Brisbane-based rubber brand Debauch Latex has been doing the rounds in our fetish-fashion-filled social media feeds and we're loving it. Making bespoke items with a femme edge is Debauch's forte - perfect for anyone looking for a classic design or a first rubberwear piece.
